We know that you're eagerly waiting for the launch of Maison Martin Margiela at H&M on November 15 but after looking over the sample stock and prices we would urge you to hit the brand's sample sale instead. Yes, even the sample sale prices start off to be expensive but we have the scoop on how to get a real deal on the real thing.
The Staff USA is the American showroom and wholesale sales center for Maison Martin Margiela and MM6, in addition to Viktor&Rolf and Dsquared2. At a past sale tees were $75 hoodies were $100 and coats were $1000, $75 for a T-shirt and over $100 for hoodies. This season pants, skirts and shirts will be priced from $100 to $600 and jackets will start at $300 and go up to $1000.
Generally, prices start at wholesale but...but the showroom is famous for their intermittent price reductions. For example, by the end of the first day prices were cut an extra 30%, the second day was 50% off and then 60% off in the afternoon. By the last day prices were slashed an extra 70% off wholesale, which is a true deal.
The downsize is that most of the stock is samples, which is a European size 40 or 42. If you are on either side of the sample range the merchandise selection is drastically reduced. If you are lucky sample size we are sure you will walk away with your arms full and a bit smug about besting the H&M collection.
